# Biome arguments

In Minecraft 1.16, they added the ability to refer to in-game biomes. The CommandAPI implements this using the BiomeArgument. As expected, this returns Bukkit's Biome enum when used.

Note:

The BiomeArgument is only supported in Minecraft versions 1.16 and later. Attempting to use the BiomeArgument on an incompatible version of Minecraft will throw a BiomeArgumentException.

### Example - Setting the biome of a chunk

Say you want to set the biome of the current chunk that a player is in. We can do this using the World.setBiome(x, y, z, biome) method for a given world. We will use this command structure to set the biome of our current chunk:

/setbiome <biome>


And we can set the biome of the current chunk as expected:

new CommandAPICommand("setbiome")
.withArguments(new BiomeArgument("biome"))
.executesPlayer((player, args) -> {
Biome biome = (Biome) args[0];

Chunk chunk = player.getLocation().getChunk();
player.getWorld().setBiome(chunk.getX(), player.getLocation().getBlockY(), chunk.getZ(), biome);
})
.register();
